I love that spirit bear. Nice work.

Is meteorite glass the same as tektite? I've been thinking it would be interesting to work with ever since I read an article about it in glassline.

Thank you Smiley no this is way different than tektite.
Tektite needs a lot of heat to melt! the meteorite glas is real soft and easy to melt.
here are two pendants i made of tektite first melted it not shape coldworked it and flamepolished after

Great, thanks for that Marcel. Always nice to hear from someone who's actually worked with something rather than just read about it.
